Tape was why. Most pro productions were at 30 IPS and that has nothing below 30 hz. Digital allows for a full range low end. The resultant phase shift is also not very good in the 160VU and 165.

Mouser sells the 3.3 uf 63V 10 mm mylar cap, buy one and add it to the rear of the 1 uf. That will give you 4.3 uf total and decent low end.
